Why Enter the NAGC Blue Pencil/Gold Screen Awards?
Just ask Barbara Page...

"Last year I won a Blue Pencil Award for The Book of Air. Apparently, the government of Australia was impressed and invited me to be the keynote speaker and workshop facilitator at their Government Marketing Conference in Canberra. So I'm off to Australia due to [NAGC]. Thought you might like to know. I am also working on an IMAX film on air that is a wonderful project and funded by EPA." - Barbara Page, Ventura, California
